Initially, it was claimed that the market system could easily allocate resources effectively. However, United States has witnessed shortage or inefficient healthcare, education and transport system. Having a bigger government becomes of importance. Government should be treated as a partner so that it can lead to positive economic effects. By intervening in the market, the government can deliver goods that the private sectors are not able to deliver. Bigger government creates competition in the economic environment leading to efficiency in the provision of basic services such as healthcare, education and the transport system. As a result, the citizens receive cheaper goods and services that are of importance to their daily lives. Bigger government should therefore be treated as a partner and not an enemy and positive results will be realized at the end.
Bigger governments are meant to benefit individuals in the society. This is because government have been seen to provide free education, scholarships to the needy, job training and even job opportunities. Through this, people are able to realize their potential. Private investors cannot provide all these at their private costs. Citizens should realize that governments are not separate units from the people. Governments are formed by people who are citizen’s f a country. Having bigger government’s means that more people are in the government hence more people are connected to the government. Having small government’s means, that few people are connected to the people in the government hence making it difficult to consult on any issue or seek for assistance. Having bigger government also means that more people are working together to meet the common needs of the society. The efforts in meeting social needs means that the society benefits in most of the cases and not private individuals. In conclusion, big governments are of great importance. They are more advantageous as compared to smaller governments.
